Syngenta Seeds, Inc., and Bayer CropScience AG, have petitioned APHIS, the Animal and Plant Health Inspection
Service of the USDA, to freely use and distribute soybean
genetically engineered for tolerance to the herbicides
glufosinate and mesotrione. They are asking for public comments to help them
identify potential environmental and interrelated economic issues and impacts.
material inserted into GE soy transfers into the DNA of bacteria living inside
our intestines and continues to function. Even after we stop eating GE foods,
we may still have the GE proteins produced continuously inside us.
Tell the USDA
that the soybeans must not be freely distributed—that without strict controls,
GE crops will encroach on non-GE crops, contaminating them, including organic
crops—which will, of course, render them non-organic.
